Lightware demonstrates network connectivity and collaboration products at InfoComm 2022

Lightware Visual Engineering highlighted a range of new and improved AV systems at InfoComm 2022, highlighting its Taurus universal matrix switchers, UBEX AVoIP devices and more.

UBEX AVoIP device 

The UBEX AVoIP device provides 4K60 video in real-time with Dolby Atmos capabilities for immersive experiences within live events, eSports or XR screen applications.

Ultra-low latency down to 0.01 ms is provided, alongside operations combining a receiver, transmitter and transceiver in one box.

The UBEX system also includes a double-scaling feature that halves the number of endpoints needed for videowalls, allowing the UBEX system to function as a single device. 

VINX AVoIP devices

The VINX series of AVoIP devices was also shown, designed for 1G Ethernet networks that can operate in point-to-point configuration with a variety of application options. 

VINX devices include built-in USB 2.0 ports for KVM functionality and advanced support for all major EDID resolutions. A number of features are included, such as HDCP to remote powering to smart bandwidth management which allows users to optimise signal management and AV system performance. 

A password-protected login function has also been added to VINX devices, requiring end-users and integrators to use a password to configure their devices for additional protection against unauthorised access. 

Taurus and Cisco meeting room systems 

Lightware also put a spotlight on its efforts to tackle the common challenges of meeting rooms and collaboration environments, showcasing ongoing integrations with Cisco combined with the Taurus UCX universal matrix switcher series. 

The Taurus platform combines USB-C technology with BYOD functionality, allowing users to share content, switch hosts and control meeting rooms directly from a laptop. Users can also connect to a choice of videoconferencing software such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Webex. 

The Taurus firmware version 1.4 is included, allowing devices to send CEC commands directly through the HDMI outputs, switch devices on/off, control volume or switch between input ports. 

TPX extenders

TPX devices are SDVoE-compatible, point-to-point extenders that allow HDMI 2.0 signal management over a single CATx cable with HDCP 2.3 and Dolby Vision support. 

TPX extenders can handle a range of connectivity standards, including bi-directional RS-232 and command injection over IR. 

TPX devices 

TPX devices are Lightware’s new, SDVoE-compatible, next-generation point-to-point extenders that allow HDMI 2.0 signal management over a single CATx cable with HDCP 2.3 and Dolby Vision support. TPX extenders can handle various connectivity standards, from bi-directional RS-232 and command injection over IR.

TPX devices enable remote powering for greater efficiency with fewer cables, ultra-low latency (as low as 0.01 ms latency) and compact size with more units able to fit into the same rack space. The newest compact TPX extenders use AVX technology combined with HDMI 2.0 capabilities.
